Why are *you* angry? Are you Red or Blue?

After the Blame

After the Blame

The past several days have been a bit of a blur for me. I sat down to write out my feelings several times immediately following the election to no avail.

A contemporary political education from a Republican

This year will have many challenges, not the least of which will be comparing and contrasting Bernie and Hillary while sifting through the Frank Luntzian messages coming from the dozen or so remaining GOP presidential candidates. You might wonder why Progressives would even want to spend time inviting blood pressure problems by trying to decoding right-wing messages? For one thing, […]
